1942 PINE BURR 

Published By 
THE SENIOR CLASS OF 

LINCOLNTON HIGH SCHOOL 

Lincolnton, North Carolina 

Volume XXI 





FOREWORD 



We have endeavored to portray in this volume those phases 
of school life at L. H. S. that will be of most value and 
pleasure in the coming years to all friends of Lincolnton. 
We realize that as the years pass, our school days will seem 
happier and brighter, for time will take away the sting of 
all disappointments and failures. Therefore, that this 
volume may recall only the happiest and most pleasant 
memories is the sincere wish of the staff of the 

1942 Pine Burr.

DEDICATION 

To one to whom we feel highly indebted— 
To one who has set an example for the 
future athletes of Lincolnton, in clean sports- 
manship and in the fighting spirit, both of 
which will win not only on the gridiron, 
hardwood and diamond, but also in the one 
great game — the game of life — to COACH 
LYLE EDWARDS, we dedicate this annual.

CLASS HISTORY 



In the year of 1938. two hundred and twenty-eight seekers of knowledge, entered into 
Lincolnton High School with Louise Holly. Alice Kincaid. Jack Walker, and Kathryn E. 
Beam as their leaders. 



Jn 19 39, one hundred and fifty-two. with Betty Gabriel. Joe ford, Mary Ethel Houscr, 
and John Anderson as their leaders, began their second year towards the top. This year we 
had the fun of carrying the daisy chain, also the Student Government was put into effect. 

In 1940. one hundred and eleven Juniors with Catherine Beam. John Anderson, and Joe 
Ford as leaders, began their third year of hard work. Never fearing the dignified Seniors and 
having much fun in publishing the school paper, running for Student Government offices, we 
ended an enjoyable year with a successful Junior-Senior Banquet. 

In 1941. seventy-two proud and dignified Seniors finally began their last steps toward their 
goal, led by David Lineberger. Donald Rudisill. Mary Ethel Houser. and Betty Gabriel. A brief 
struggle with governmental facts, Shakespearean tragedies, and geometrical figures led us to the 
final change of selecting rings and invitations, publishing the annual, and presenting the Senior 
Play. 

Many months have passed, now we suddenly realize that we have reached our goal — 
graduation! As we face the outside world there is a mingled feeling of regret in our hearts, as 
we think of trying our wings in a broad, open world and leaving behind us forever the sheltered 
friendliness of our high school years. The four years within the walls of L. H. S. have been 
well spent. May our happiness here strike a keynote for the coming years of our activity, 
wherever we may go.

CLASS PROPHECY 

Knowing that the task of prophet was difficult. I taxed all my prophetic powers and gazed 
at the twinkling stars — as I gazed at the stars the blurred visions came clear. 

I sec James Elliott, now a famous physician in a large hospital, and Alice Kincaid, the 
laboratory technician. I also see Bobby Willis and his undertaking establishment in the same 
town. 

As I look at the stars again. I see David I.ineberger. now an outstanding lawyer and no 
other than Dorothy Seagle as his private secretary. A crowded theatre now appeared and who 
should come on the stage but Melvin Sipe and his orchestra. At the back of the theatre stood 
Bill Rudisill. manager. 

In a large hospital in Philadelphia I recognize Christine Steffan, Ruth Prospt, Elizabeth Mc- 
Ginnis, Minnie Sue Barger. and Helen Auten. who are now capable nurses. 

I found that Helen Ross and Betty Gabriel are members of the faculty of a large high school 
in North Carolina. 

Next I see a large passenger plane about to leave on a flight. The pilot, much to my surprise, 
is Charlie Childs and the air hostess, Jean Barlow. 

I found in a large airplane factory Franklin Grigg and Walter I.ineberger. expert designers, 
and in the same factory are Ralph Heafner. G. B. Smith. J. W. I.aney. and Charles Hornbuckle 
as capable mechanics. 

It did not surprise me to find Buster Knight, Lee Elmore, and Bill Chapman playing pro- 
fessional football 

And there is Colonel Jimmie Owen, head of the R. O. T. C. unit at the largest college in 
New York State. 

In Hollywood I see two famous stars. Laura Gene Cochrane and Nancy Self wearing dresses 
designed by Martha Ann Hoyle. 

Dorothy Blaney is now a Social Service worker in Chicago. There is Darrell Ewing. director 
of the State College Extension Service, and Sam Freeman, editor of the Progressive Farmer. 

At a large theatre I see Betty Wood Kizer at the grand piano playing the "Bridal Chorus." 
At the same time on the stage are many pretty maidens including: Thelma Cashion. Dorothy 
Neal Goodson, Louise Dcvine and Virginia Finger. 

In Raleigh. Gordon Robinson is being sworn in as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court 
by Chief Justice George Shuford. Among those present at the ceremony are Bill Lindsay, District 
Engineer of the State Flighway Commission, and Ralph Jonas, prominent Lincolnton attorney- 
at-law. At the desk sits Katherine Beam of Crouse, Margaret I.ineberger, and Donald Rudisill, 
reporters for the State's largest newspaper. 

At the air-base in Jacksonville, Florida, I see four Carolinians as lieutenants in the air corps: 
Clyde Rhyne, Robert Sherrill. Paul Campbell, and Paul Brackett. 

I am glad to see that North Carolina has risen far toward the top of the list in literary 
achievement with Catherine Beam as President of the Writer's Club and Playwright Louise Holly 
writing the best play of the year. 

John Anderson has just been elected City Manager of Charlotte. I am not surprised to see 
Bob Hauss president of the largest department store in Charlotte. In a beautifully decorated home 
I see Christine Turner and Betty Garrison, who are interior decorators. 

Flying not far away on a seaplane is Lieutenant Bud Warlick and Joe Ford, an official at 
the Naval Air Station. 

Hester Helms is directing a group of operators in her Modern Beauty Parlor in Boston. 

Johnnie Ellis, Ralph Goodman, and Foard Buff are construction engineers in New York City. 
Hazel Craig. Margaret Leonard, and Margaret Ingle are head of a kindergarten school in Los 
Angeles, California. Two outstanding members of the Lincolnton High School faculty are Mary 
Ethel Hotiser and Helen Wise. 

In a Lincolnton hospital I see Doctor Mabel Burris. pneumonia specialist. The head nurse 
there is Bobbie Huss. 

And there is Margaret Haynes working in the largest bank in New York City. 

I see Don Culberson has become the wrestling champion of the world. 

Catherine Devine and Roxanna Lynch are managing a ladies' ready-to-wear in Chicago. I am 
sure their experience in the athletic store at Lincolnton High School has a great deal to do with 
their ability to sell. 

As I look for the twinkling stars again. I find that dark clouds have covered the whole sky. 
But why should I worry.'' I have finished the prophecy of the class of 1942. 

BILLY HOYLE, Class Prophet.

CLASS POEM 



We've had our trials, we've had our fun. 
Throughout these four short years. 
We know our work is just begun, 
We leave with many tears. 

We know the work before us now, 
Is very, very great. 
We wish that you could tell us how 
To lick this world of hate. 



But we will bravely fight along 

On what our school has given. 

And since our school has made us strong 

We're sure we'll forge on, giving. 

So now we've come to say "Goodbye" 
To our beloved school. 
"March on," we seem to hear you cry 
"Turn hate to Golden Rule." 

David Lineberger, Class Poet, 
the year l ( >41-42.
